Art Laabs received a letter and a copy of the Peoria, Ill., Morning Star from his cousin, Ben Marquardt last week which gives a little line on what the big boy is doing. Ben belongs to the St. Paul Association club but was loaned to the Peoria team, of the Three I league several weeks ago. He has been pitching good ball down there and struck out 8 men out of eleven who faced him in the last four innings of a thirteen inning game. According to the Peoria paper the fans down there are bugs about Rube and his powerful left arm.
